Homemade Chapstick

Today I made 41 tubes of chapstick, about 20 cherry and 21 cinnamon flavoured.  The recipe I used was okay but I think I'll keep looking for a better one.  
Here's the mix I used:
4 tablespoons coconut oil
2 tablespoons beeswax (rough estimate: about 25 grams, melted and strained)
1 tablespoon raw honey
essential oil (I used cherry and cinnamon)
I found I needed to keep everything pretty darn hot and keep stirring or it would separate and not set in the tubes very well.
Live and learn. :)

Wow - what do you do with your "live and learn" batches? Where do you even order tubes? This is too cool!

Oh this will work T but I think my next recipe will have shea butter in it. I ordered the tubes online. :)
